In North Yorkshire Scouts we are fortunate enough to have a lot of adult leaders who are qualified to instruct our Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts in various outdoor activities pertaining to their age ranges.
To allow our young people to enjoy the myriad of exciting Scouting activities costs us a lot of money - joining our 200 Club is one of the ways that YOU can help us to achieve our goals
If you join our 200 Club - HALF the money you pay quarterly goes in PRIZES and the other HALF goes towards our County Scout Funds - this is a way of raising money for North Yorkshire Scouts AND allows YOU the the possible thrill of winning one of the ten prizes in our Monthly Draw - EVERY MONTH!
This month's Draw INCLUDES our 'end of Financial Year' Draw of 2 x £50 as well!
We DO need your help - numbers of members participating are reducing and, therefore, so is the money we can add to our County Scout Funds. PLEASE join and help if you can!
If you are interested in finding out more about the Draw (or joining it) please contact David, our County Secretary, at the County Office NOW!
In less than 50 days is York Pride (Sat 8th June 2019), the largest celebration of diversity across North Yorkshire. This year it has a focus on young people and has invited Scouting to lead the parade holding the 50 metre long rainbow flag.
York Pride will be a huge recruitment tool for Scouting across North Yorkshire for both new young members and for adults. This will only be possible if you, your section or even your group can attend. York Pride attracts tens of thousands of people for the parade and the major event is on York Racecourse. Places to be in the parade will become limited soon, so please register HERE as soon as possible.
The Lord-Lieutenant for North Yorkshire, Mrs Jo Ropner, has kindly accepted an invitation to be the County President of North Yorkshire Scouts.

Mrs Ropner will support North Yorkshire Scouts and its 1300 volunteer leaders in helping to promote the skills for life and opportunities for adventure that Scouting offers young people from all genders from age 6 to 18.
Mark Edwards, County Commissioner North Yorkshire Scouts, said: “We are delighted that Mrs Ropner has agreed to be our County President. This continues our excellent relationship with the Lieutenancy, and Mrs Ropner will be a great ambassador to champion Scouting and help us to reach even more young people from all backgrounds and communities across North Yorkshire.”
In her new role as County President, Mrs Ropner will be the principal guest at this year’s Scout & Guides St George’s Day Celebrations in York on Sunday 28th April, the largest Scouting celebration of St George’s Day in the country. Mrs Ropner said: “I have always held the work of Scouts in high esteem. Given the challenges that our young people face in this changing world, I believe this is more important than ever. I look forward to being involved with North Yorkshire Scouts over the coming years.”
